Over 100 students of the Bachelor’s Degree in Tourism are completing internships despite the pandemic



Over 100 students of HTSI’s Bachelor’s Degree in Tourism and Hospitality Management are currently interning in companies from the international tourism and hotel sector.

By working closely with the sector, the School of Tourism managed to ensure that students would be able to complete their obligatory internships and complete their bachelor’s degrees despite the crisis in the sector caused by the pandemic.

Hotels and businesses focused on recreation, cruises, digital marketing, events or safaris are some companies where students are training this second semester.

At the School of Tourism and Hospitality Management Sant Ignasi (URL), training with businesses is key. Graduates need the skills to make the most of their opportunities for a successful professional career.

As a result, HTSI’s university programs include both optional and mandatory internships with businesses. This connection with the professional world allows students to apply what they learn in the classroom in a real-world setting, and helps the industry find the talent they need to fill jobs in the future.
